2003 - 2010 Super Duty 5R110W Transmission Service Procedures

There are many different procedures for servicing an automatic transmission, including the popular (and sometimes controversial) power flush method. The method described herein is favorable for the DIYer and requires no special equipment. For all intents and purposes, these service procedures are sufficient in maximizing the performance and longevity of the 5R110W TorqShift transmission. Ford specifies that the transmission be serviced every 30,000 miles regardless of the type of driving. Failure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations may decrease transmission life significantly.

Draining the TorqShift transmission

• Place an oil drain container beneath the fluid pan of the transmission.

• Remove the transmission pan fluid drain plug using a 13mm socket and allow the fluid to drain completely, then replace the plug.

Removing the TorqShift transmission pan

• The transmission fluid pan is secured in place with 20 fasteners. The bolts are all identical and require a 10mm socket.

• Remove 18 of the 20 transmission pan bolts, leaving a bolt on both the driver and passenger side of the transmission (opposing sides). You'll need various extensions and a swivel joint attachment in order to access the rear pan bolts.

• While holding the pan against the transmission, remove the last 2 bolts and carefully lower the pan. The pan will retain a small amount of ATF, which should be emptied into catch container.

Chaning the transmission pan filter

• Remove the large pan filter assembly by pulling downwards with a slight side-to-side rocking motion.

Removing the old transmission filter gasket

• The transmission pan filter gasket tends to stick inside the filter orifice. Check to ensure that the gasket/o-ring was removed with the filter. If it is stuck in the orifice, carefully remove it with a small pick or screwdriver.

• Install a new transmission pan filter in the reverse manner it was removed. Lightly coat the gasket with fresh ATF to ensure a smooth installation and proper seal.

Cleaning the transmission pan and magnet

• Remove and completely clean the internal magnet sitting above the transmission pan drain plug. Excessive clutch material and/or shiny material in the transmission pan indicates that it has not been serviced properly and/or the transmission may have a problem. Large metal filings or chunks of metal debris is indicative of serious part failures - have the transmission tested and inspected by a professional.

• Completely clean the inside of the transmission drain pan, removing all remnants of the old fluid. Reinstall the magnet, clean the gasket mounting surface on the pan, then reinstall the pan on the transmission. The pan gasket can be cleaned and reused so long as it has not cracks or signs of deterioration. Torque the 20 pan bolts to 11 ft-lbs.

Removing the external transmission filter on a TorqShift transmission

• The external transmission filter is located inside the frame rails on the passenger side of the truck (crawl under front passenger side of truck and look above leaf springs/behind the radiator).

• Place an oil drain pan below the filter housing, then remove the external transmission filter using a 22mm socket.

• Remove and discard the external transmission filter housing o-ring/gasket.

external transmission filter magnet

• Separate the old transmission filter and the spring loaded magnetic base. Discard the used filter; it should be treated as an oil filter and appropriately recycled.

• Thoroughly clean both sides of the magnet, removing all metallic debris that it has collected. The magnet is encased in a plastic housing, so do not use harsh solvents to clean it (i.e. brake cleaner, carb cleaner) as it will damage the plastic.

Replacing the external filter on a TorqShift transmission

• Apply a light coating of ATF to the new filter o-ring/gasket, then install it in place.

• Attach the magnetic filter base to the new transmission filter. The nipple on the base inserts into the filter element (top and bottom of the filter element are identical) and then the assembly installs into the housing with the spring seating into the indentation on the bottom of the housing.

• Reinstall the external filter assembly.

Adding ATF to a TorqShift transmission

• Remove the transmission dipstick and add MERCON SP ATF until the fluid level reaches the cold fill indication zone on the transmission dipstick. If possible, you can remove much of the guesswork out of refilling the transmission by measuring the amount of fluid removed.

• Once the transmission fluid level reads full, start and allow the truck to run for 2-3 minutes. Check transmission fluid level and add as necessary. Check for leaks around the transmission pan and external filter housing.

• Drive the truck and allow both the engine and transmission to reach full operating temperature, then check fluid once more and add as necessary.

• If the transmission has not been properly serviced in the past, we recommend draining the fluid (without removing the transmission pan) and refilling it once more after a few drive cycles. It is impossible to drain 100% of the transmission fluid with this technique, but repeating the drain and fill process replenishes the fluid supply with fresh ATF.

2004-2014 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck Routine Maintenance FAQ

Maintenance Schedule

The following intervals are based on the assumption that you will be doing the service work yourself, as opposed to paying to have the work done. These are our recommended minimum maintenance intervals for vehicles that are driven daily, and in many cases are shorter than the factory’s recommendations. Because frequent maintenance enhances the efficiency, performance and resale value of your Jeep, we encourage you to follow our schedule. If you drive in dusty areas, tow a trailer, idle or drive at low speeds for extended periods, or drive for short periods (less than four miles at a time) in below freezing temperatures, even smaller intervals are recommended.

When the vehicle is new, follow the maintenance schedule to the letter, record it in your owner’s manual and keep all receipts to protect the warranty and resale value. In many cases the initial maintenance check is done by the dealer at no cost (check with the service department when you buy the truck for more information).

[1] The piston of the 6.0L Power Stroke was redesigned for the 2004 model year and required a shorter glow plug. Early glow plugs CANNOT be used in later engines as they will contact the piston and cause catastrophic engine damage. September 29th, 2003 is the engine build date cutoff; early 2004 model year trucks received 2003 model year engines.
[2] 2003 and early 2004 model year trucks feature an engine calibration that uses an inferred exhaust backpressure reading. Therefore, the sensor is not used by the PCM and should not require replacement.
[3] The ICP sensor on 2003 and early 2004 model year trucks is located behind the turbocharger, next to the IPR valve. This ICP sensor is a separate part number than the later valve cover positioned sensor.
[4] Limited slip differentials may require a supplemental additive/friction modifier - use Motorcraft XL-3.

*NOTE*  Before you even get started reading this writeup, I want to make it clear that I get zero credit for this!

100% of the credit goes to Mark Kovalsky of the FTE forums.  

Everything you see here was done following his writeup at the following link:


Changing ATF Fluid in a E40D and 4R100 transmission




My only motivation for doing this writeup was to show a few pictures of the process.


So, here we go....


20 quarts of transmission fluid are required to do the job.  The transmission capacity is 18qts, but a few quarts must be wasted to flush out all of the old fluid.


I chose Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF which adds up pretty quick at $10/qt!



I chose to replace the filter, Motorcraft P/N YC3Z-7A098-BA 


Gather up some empty jugs for disposing of the old fluid.  Also, the funnel pictured below makes refilling the fluid super easy


You'll also need around 10 feet of clear tubing.  For my truck 1/2" ID was the right size.


Remove the drain plug to drain the transmission pan using a 1/2" socket.


About eight quarts drained out of mine.


Remove the 20 bolts for the transmission pan.  The bolts are size 10mm.


Remove the filter.  Just pull straight down and it will pop out.  Be extra careful that you get the o-ring out as well.  

Mine did not come out with the filter, I had to reach up in there and pull it out! 


This is the o-ring that didn't come out on mine


Just after removing the pan 


Clean up the pan and the magnet on the bottom. 


Clean up the original gasket as well.  It is reusable. 


Install the new filter.  Just push it upward into the transmission. 


Reinstall the pan and gasket, alternately tightening the bolts to 11 lb-ft.


Refill the transmission with the same amount that was drained out earlier, as I said it was around eight quarts for me.


I found that it worked well to rig the funnel with a few cable ties like this. 


Disconnect the transmission cooler return line using a 5/8" line wrench.

This is on the passenger side of the transmission, the rear-most line.


Place the clear tubing over the line and clamp it in place. 


I used a tiny c-clamp to hold the tubing in place on the drain pan. 


Start the truck and let the fluid pump out until you see air in the clear tube.  As soon as you see air, turn off the engine.



I pumped out around six quarts the first time



Repeat the process of refilling and pumping out fluid until you have added 19 quarts of new fluid.

At some point while the engine is running, run the transmission through all of the gears, pausing around 5seconds in each position.


I only had to repeat the process once, draining around five quarts the second time.


Remove the clear tubing from the cooler line and reconnect it to the transmission.


Check the fluid level with the dipstick and use the last quart to top it off.


That's it!
